Edric, I thought you said that...
Lets get it straight Cheeky = illegal calling it something else doesn't change what it is
It is illegal to cycle on public footpaths and you are open to civil prosecution by the land owner for tresspass.
Some people on here really seem to have no respect for the country or those who own and work the land .Can I suggest they stay in town and take up squash again?
But a vague reference to "tradition or tolerance"? That's all right then!
The CROW has no bearing on access rights except on foot, and the last paragraph in your cut-and-paste just says access granted under CROW doesn't nullify any rights that already exist.
The trig point is on CROW access land, so people who walk up to it are perfectly within their rights even though it's not a footpath. But it's not a bridleway, and you (like me and many other people) ride it anyway. Of course this is ridiculous as it's on the main track which is far better defined than some of the actual bridleways nearby, but these kind of anomalies abound and are the cause of much of the conflict.
I've pressed this point to try and help you see it's not black and white.
